Nothing but good words for this hotel.... Friendly efficient staff...nice bedroom and bathroom. Traffic noise can be problem... try for room at rear. The roof-top bar/restaurant is fabulous...breakfast there was a treat. The location is second to none...with stunning views of the Acropolis...and the Temple of Zeus. We would recommend this hotel and next time we're in Athens...we shall return...

Visited Athens in November with my wife and enjoyed both the city and this hotel. Had one of the small budget rooms but got if for for less than 200€ for two nights (in total) which I thought was a good price. The breakfast is really good and the view from the restaurant is spectacular. The Acropolis and the old...

We stayed in Sep 13, the hotel is on a busy road but ask for a room at the back. Fantastic location, easy walking distance to the Paka area and Acropolis, and the best rooftop bar in Athens. The staff are extremely helpful in places to see and will explain and teach you any Greek words to help your stay....

Only stayed one night on the return trip - but I loved this hotel. Super great roof - lovely view of the Parthenon - and it's fairly private. A great place to have a cocktail with your love pal. Really close to the Acropolis Museum (a must see), and the ruins themselves. Ask for a quiet room - you won't...

The athens gate hotel is in a terrific location and allows easy access to all tourist spots. However, it is very important that you pick which side of the hotel you want you bedrooms to because it makes all the difference as to whether you will get any sleep. In terms of the quality of service it was a terrific...

My wife and I stayed here at the end of our trip. The location, near the Acropolis Museum, is excellent! It was easy to walk anywhere in the old town from here. The rooms were clean and modern and comfortable, and we even had a great view of the Acropolis from our window/balcony. The staff was great, and breakfasts were...

I haven't stayed here yet, but will definitely write a review after we get back. I wanted to let people know about their amazing help with pre-arrival stuff. We asked for directions from the metro station via email, and within 24 hours had a response in perfect English. Additionally, they let me know about the transfer they have which only...

I stayed at this hotel with a group of 6 friends for 5 nights during the 2013 Athens Classic Marathon. The location is excellent, close to metro and tram lines.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
